Continuing with our Summer Essentials theme, we present another staple of the season: The White Jean. Now why, you may ask, is this a Style of “Sport” feature? The answer is because they look a heck of a lot better when you are in shape! Fit bodies, however, come in different shapes and sizes and what looks good on me, might not be the right style for you. We asked our Facebook friends for their favorites and from skinny to boyfriend fit, now present your top picks for the hot white jeans of Summer 2014!
ROW 1: J.BRAND Mid-Rise Cropped Capri $172. Ok, me first… Great for athletic builds, the slimming capri shape and cropped leg make these white jeans one of this editor’s personal favorites. PAIGE Verdugo $179. These skinny white stretch-denim jeans are closely cut for a long and lean silhouette, and “ideal for those with a flatter rear”, says fashion editor and former Self Magazine colleague, McLain Bennett. 7 FOR ALL MANKIND Josephina $169. “White jeans should not be tight. A boyfriend fit is the way to go”, suggests very-in-shape SoulCycle spinner, Susan Thomson. These crisp white jeans from 7 For All Mankind have the perfect relaxed yet flattering fit. CURRENT/ ELLIOT The Stiletto $168. The Stiletto is a chic fitted jean, cropped above the ankle, and a favorite of Laurie Miller O’Connell, owner of Perch Vail in Vail Colorado, who curates her store with the perfect selection of year round apres-ski AND sea!
ROW 2: AG The Stilt $164. This crisp white, cigarette leg skinny jean has a streamlined silhouette that looks polished dressed up or down. Raves SOS friend Heather Berman Yablon, “They are so soft and sit low on the waist. I love the back pockets and great white white color!” RAG & BONE Dre $187. This Slim Fit Boyfriend Jean was a popular favorite of a number of SOS readers including Marion Berrian Roaman, Co-Founder and General Manager of Peloton, the hot new indoor cycling studio and bicycle company. These white jeans feature a straight-leg style with a relaxed fit and are infused with stretch for extra wearability. RALPH LAUREN DENIM & SUPPLY Carmen Skinny Jean $79.50. This cotton-blend jean is designed with a fitted silhouette. “They are skinny with the perfect amount of stretch”, says good buddy, Glynis Karp, SVP Global Merchandising at Ralph Lauren Childrenswear. She owns 5 pairs, and of course, is wearing them today. J.CREW Stretch Toothpick $115. Fitted through the hip and legs, with a superskinny, ankle-length cut, these are another Style of Sport favorite for their lean and sexy fit. They are made of premium stretch cotton from Cone Denim®, one of the oldest denim mills in the world. Not that she has one, but financier Alexandra Lebenthal says, “They don’t make my butt look big… very important when it comes to white jeans!”
